Team ethic key to Gerrard's Rangers' title success

Steven Gerrard has praised the spirit in the Rangers team after leading the Glasgow outfit to their first Scottish Premiership title in a decade following Celtic's 0-0 draw with Dundee United on Sunday.

That stalemate means Rangers have established a 20-point lead at the top of the table with only six games remaining and the title success gives Liverpool legend Gerrard the first trophy of his managerial career.

The Gers have enjoyed a terrific campaign, winning their latest match 3-0 against St Mirren on Saturday, and have dropped only eight points in an unbeaten league campaign.

They have allowed only nine goals all season, with only two of those coming at Ibrox, which has become a fortress in the 2020-21 campaign.

Celtic, who parted ways with former manager Neil Lennon earlier this year, were targeting an unprecedented tenth successive Premiership title this season but have been disappointing, dropping points in 12 of their league assignments this term.

Speaking about his team's season, Gerrard said: "In year one and year two we have at times been heavily reliant on certain individuals..

"It's taken us time to get the squad into this shape with this quality.

"I think the star is the team. There is no ego in the team. Everyone is playing together. There's a great spirit in the group."

Rangers have also been going well in the Europa League and they are 3.40 to beat Slavia Prague, who are 2.20 to win with the draw 3.25, on Thursday.
